an extraordinary sentence in the "new york times" this morning. many house republicans appear to view mr. boehner with the same sort of respect that adult children award their parents for the sage counsel they ignored in their younger days, which is amazing and i've long thought of some of the republicans as children. so it's interesting that now we call them adult children. how has speaker boehner corralled his caucus to respect him and work with him and be on board with him when we know it's -- they like discipline over there, but it's a raucous group as well. >> he had to do it the hard way. we haven't seen a modern speaker have to do it this way. the way he had to do it was allow the nuts to run things for a couple of years and see where that got them. so he couldn't get any control over these kinds of people, you know, a year ago, two years ago, and he has got to show them, look. we did it your way. we allowed you crazy tea party indulgences here and took all the votes on basically changing and ends medicare as we know it. we lost a bunch of elections because of it, including the presidency.
